It’s that time of year again when your significant other gets away with buying you candy, flowers and (if you're lucky!) jewelry, and you’re stuck on an idea of what present to buy your boyfriend/husband this Valentine’s Day. While the previous are all great options for either gender, here are 14 original gifts for him that any man would love to receive this Feb. 14:

EDIBLE BUGS-- ThinkGeek.com-- $19.99

SPOTIFY-- Spotify.com-- $9.99 per month (First 30 days are free)

CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY-- Ebay.com-- Prices Vary
Get your man the game everyone is talking about. If your lover enjoys the classic Apples to Apples board game, then he will love Cards Against Humanity.
